2017
FIRST RECIPIENT
OF THE
PATTY MAYO MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

KYLI DUFFY, 2017 Yellville-Summit High School graduate was FIRST recipient of the “Patty Mayo Memorial Scholarship” sponsored by the Republican Women of Marion County. This $1,000 scholarship is given to a Marion County graduating high school senior or home-school student who has met the requirements of the application and was chosen by the scholarship committee. This year’s essay topic was “What Patriotism Means to Me”. In her essay, Ms. Duffy wrote about a man from her church who served in the Army and the sacrifices the gentleman made on her behalf defending her freedom. She stated, “I am so humbled and not worthy of such sacrifice. The only way I know to repay this is through my Patriotism. Loving the United States, loving what our founding fathers started, and loving what many have fought and died for is patriotism. To me, patriotism is a deep true love for my country that no issue or politician can come between. True patriots have each other’s back. It means all for one and one for all.”

Kyli Duffy was the Valedictorian of her class, she is the daughter of Kevin and Kary Duffy of Yellville. Miss Duffy has been very active in her school and community. She is enrolled in Arkansas State University of Mountain Home and plans to one day become a pediatrician. The Republican Women of Marion County wish Kyli Duffy the best of luck and congratulate her on becoming their first scholarship recipient.
